James And Kirsty’s pre wedding shoot at Merley House

A cold but sunny Sunday morning and I’m off to meet James and Kirsty at Merley House. They booked me over year ago so it was lovely to catchup and discuss how the big day is fast approaching. After a good look around this stunning old house we took a few portraits. This is something I like to do so the bride and groom are more comfortable on the day.

James and Kirsty are getting married mid July and I cannot wait to shoot what I know will be a gorgeous day,

Mr And Mrs Shaw Get Married At Christchurch Harbour Hotel

A stunning Sunday for a beautiful wedding in Dorset. Its finally the big day for Alison and Martin and their woodland themed wedding at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel.

The day started meeting the bride who was having a few finishing touches on her hair and makeup,  It was then of to meet Martin (who wasn’t at the bar). Shortly after a few groom portraits it was time for the ceremony.

After the the I do’s we headed outside to enjoy the gorgeous weather and for some stunning portraits, whilst the guests where entertained by a magician and had the chance to handle some birds of prey.

It really is true time fly’s whens your having fun I love my job so much the day was just fantastic, before I knew it they were heading for the first dance which was rather entertaining due to a routine the happy couple had learned.

Below are a small selection of my photos from the day, if you are a friend or family of the bride and groom then you can view all the images here, (please just ask for the password ask the bride or groom? or do they ask you??)

Travis and Paula’s Pre wedding shoot

A gorgeous sunny day in Dorset started with a drink and catchup at the local with Travis and Paula. Its less then 3 weeks till the big day now and I’m very much looking forward to this wedding. What a stunning church set in the middle of the countryside and the after venue is completely different so I think I will keep that a surprise for now.

The sun was shining so we got cracking with the pre wedding photos but Travis and Paula were instant naturals and are going to be fab on the day!
